Really looking forward to catch this amazing new documentary THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish filmmakers, after languishing in a basement of a TV station for 30 years, into an irresistible mosaic of images, music, and narration chronicling the evolution one of America's most indelible turning points, the Black Power movement. Featuring candid interviews with the movement's most explosive revolutionary minds, including Angela Davis, Bobby Seale, Stokely Carmichael, and Kathleen Cleaver, the film explores the community, people and radical ideas of the movement.
Music by Questlove and Om'Mas Keith, and commentary from and modern voices including Erykah Badu, Harry Belafonte, Talib Kweli, and Melvin Van Peebles give the historical footage a fresh sound and make THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE an exhilarating, unprecedented account of an American revolution.

The creative CUT netlabel are back again on there 6th re;ease, pushing deep, low-slung, downtempo beats and percussion with glistening washes of synth that perfectly encapsulates that glow of the evening light, that slow burn of a setting sun, and that hint of the Summer coming to a close. Personal favorite being the track 'Dry'. Free download or just drop a little bit of coinage for the EP. Recommended.
